How to get Cura to slice my 0.4 mm walls?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · How to get Cura to slice my 0.4 mm walls?

I got into 3D printing a few years back.

A lot of my designs are containers with walls of the size of my nozzle, 0.4 mm

Back then I gave up using cura very fast, cause I couldn't get it to slice these parts.

I used ReplicatorG since then, and it never ever had any problems slicing these parts.

Now I bought a new printer and I try to work with Cura 3.1.0

Still cannot get Cura to slice it right (leaves big gaps, jumps all over the place...)

 

Please see example stl attached and help me with the proper settings if possible.

I'm sure it's user error...

Thanks for the quick response.

Oh dear, not the info I was hoping for.

Back to using multiple slicers then. 

Hope that the Cura developers will fix that after all these years.

it will slice when you tick the "print thin walls" box

it's seems cura produces some strange artifacts... and a huge amount of travel.

for this simple shape you may just want to try the "spriralize" setting for a nice clean single wall print.

Try setting "Line Width" slightly lower than 0.4. I set it at 0.38 and it sliced fine.

Thank you so much, clicking on settings and searching "Thin" allowed me to tick the "Print thin walls" option and now its slicing perfectly.

Thank you once again, great community.
